Pre-op appointment May 23, 2012
We spent several hours at Children's Hospital yesterday. Ollie needed to get a hip x-ray on a totally unrelated issue that we are hoping will be nothing. We did get a chance to meet with his surgeon and a nurse to get the details of the surgery for May 29th. All of the major sutures in Ollie's head are fused except the lambdoids (in the back of the head). This Tuesday's surgery will correct the shape of the front of Ollie's head including his eye orbits. The surgery will be 4-5 hours long and we are expecting to have Oliver in the hospital for 4-5 days. There is a possibility that this one surgery could be the only surgery Ollie needs but he may need more depending on how his skull grows. As our doctor said, "This is a dynamic condition," and I am reminded that we have a dynamic God that cares for us. Please say a prayer for Ollie and his family.
